Game for the Weekend 3 iSketch

I know that this is the second online game of the weekend in a row but this is just to much fun, and that's what games should be all about fun. iSketch is an online multiplayer game. One person sketches a word and the others have to guess what it is.

The first one to guess right gets the most points and the others have 20 seconds to guess it as well before time runs up. If they guess it as well they are awarded less points than the previous participants who guessed correctly.

The word in question is not shown of course in the chat, all other invalid guesses are. You get some fine tools to draw the word(s) like different colors, a spray can, pencil and so on. Could be that this thing is more powerful than paint. Most rooms that are available are English rooms but you also find German, Spanish, French and custom ones.

The game features several modes, the most popular one to draw one word but there are variations of that mode were players may have to draw more than one word or have only five sketches to draw it. Games have a difficulty rating (easy, normal and expert) and can be themed as well. You may join themed channels like Christmas, Poker or Cartoons if you like.

The game has a huge user base. More than 1500 were connected to the game just a few minutes ago while I was checking it out. Game rooms have normally a limit of ten players but sometimes you find more than that amount in a room. This means that not everyone is going to sketch a word but all are able to take part and guess them.

Update: Please note that you need to have the Adobe Shockwave Player plugin installed in your web browser to play the game. Note that this is different from Flash Player.
